On the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, we have protected the Holy Name of Jesus from the blasmphemy of Kathy Griffin.
Kathy Griffin's offensive remarks will not be part of the E! telecast," an academy spokeswoman said on Tuesday. An "abbreviated version" of her acceptance speech will air, instead, she said.
The pre-recorded Emmy Awards is editing her blasphemous remark, thanks to those of us who contacted, and the intrepid Bill Donohue of the Catholic League.
Griffin's reaction to the imbroglio, according to a statement issued by her publicist: "Am I the only Catholic left with a sense of humor?"
Blasphemy is against the Second Commandment, Kathy, this is NOT humor. By the way, didn't you describe yourself to Houston's Gay magazine as a "militant aetheist?"
Congratulations to all you out there who emailed Dick Askin.
